If you want space, seclusion, tranquility, sea - look no further. At Katamah you get all that and more! From Sally the parrot to vibrant hummingbirds, snowy egrets and herons (plus circling eagles!) toads in the pond, gorgeous flora, it's a fab location on the water's edge. The vibe is special-attention to detail, laid back, easy going, looked after by... More

The ultimate romantic getaway! Location was perfect and the ocean sounds were rhythmic! The outdoor bathrooms were just lovely, local restaurants had an amazing atmosphere and the staff was accommodating. A bit of a travel to get there from Kingston but the travel was worth it.

Reading any enchanting fiction novel about jamaica, one must pause and take a deep breath, as the seemingly unreal description of this wonderful country hits with unending beauty and clarity. This feeling is a reality at Katamah... Owned and operated by some of the most genuine incredible people a person can meet, this tiny little string of guest villas along... More

This is my second week-long stay at Katamah this year. My husband and I stayed 8 nights in February (we had planned to stay 6 nights but liked it so much that we extended our stay) and I have returned on my own for 6 nights (3 nights left). We both felt so welcomed and found the accomodations comfortable, clean... More

My friend and I stayed at Katamah for 3 nights at the start of my spring break and it was the perfect way to get right into vacation mode. It was rustic and yet so clean and comfy; like having all the benefits of nature/camping without the hassle of setting up and taking it down or incessant bugs. I instantly... More

We stayed at Katamah in the Habibi and Saida rooms last week and had a wonderful experience. We were driving from Ochi and got to Treasure Beach a little past midnight, but Andrew graciously checked us in and helped get our bags to the rooms. The rooms were very quaint with Moroccan themed touches, and quite spacious. The grounds have... More

We had a perfect stay in Katamah. Due to late booking, we could only book the Mounia cabin. But when we arrived, Monika could offer us a free upgrade to the Laila room for the first two days of our stay. The last day we stayed in the Mounia cabin, and both were just great. She also gave good directions... More
